KEN is a 46 year veteran hotelier and entrepreneur. Formerly owned two hotels, an advertising agency, a wholesale tour company, a POS company, a leasing company, and a hotel management company. The hotels included chain owned, franchises, and independents. They ranged in type from small luxury inns, to limited service properties, to large convention hotels and resorts.

Ken operated more that 100 hotels and resorts in the US and Caribbean and formed eight companies. He is a firm believer that senior management should share their knowledge and experience with the next generation of management.

Larry Tyler has written about the need for a getaway.  A retreat where one can recharge the batteries and escape the whirlwind of daily life.  Of course, his "cottage by the sea" can be anyplace.  Perhaps a cabin in...
Lessons learned and relearned Where to start?  Perhaps the most sweeping realization is that our society is ill equipped to “rough it”.  Pioneers we are not.  For the most part we are totally reliant on others, not only for our...
